The enlargement of a snapshot does not simply render more precise what in any case was visible, though unclear: it reveals entirely new structural formations of the subject

The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

Offering equipment and expert assistance, SW Darkroom is a sanctuary to produce exhibition standard work in a spacious and calm environment with minimal distractions. You can book the entire darkroom space for a whole day to do large silver gelatin prints (up to 54″), or book a four hour slot for printing up top 20″ x 24″. In addition to the darkroom space for black/white and colour printing, we offer Mac workstations, a flatbed scanner and a 44″ HP Inkjet printer as well as film processing. We are happy to announce the addition of colour printing with the installation of a Colenta RA4 processor. Contact us if you would like to come have a look, we would be happy to show you around the space
